Kia has boosted its focus the UK fleet market by appointing a national rental and leasing manager.
Andy Dunsdon takes up the newly-created role after three years working as a regional business sales manager for Kia.
Head of fleet and re-marketing at Kia, John Hargreaves, said: “We have strong ambitions in the fleet market over the coming years, and have some fantastic product to do it with, so having the right people, with the right experience, in place to tell our customers about this is vital. I am delighted to welcome Andy to his new role within the Kia Fleet team.”
Dunsdon said: “Kia has been on a relentless product offensive in the last few years that is bringing lots of new customers from the business sector to our brand. I’m excited to take on the challenge of expanding our partnerships with major rental and leasing partners and developing even stronger ties with our existing clients.”
Kia saws it best ever first half performance in the fleet sector in 2011 thanks to the arrival of the Sportage crossover and the continued success of the Ceed family of vehicles. This success is likely to continue with the imminent arrival of the all-new Rio hatchback and, later in the year, the new Optima saloon.
